4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A very nice mix. A nice colour and very pleasant taste. Doesn’t taste as strong as it should and that’s good. I’m impressed. A good combination of Belgian Tripel and TIPA. Thanks to Scotch Whiskey Barrels.
Want to have some more this kind of beer.

Bottle from Vika enjoyed at home
Deep copper, beige head.Smells of oak, bourbon, vanilla, light malts, some dark fruits too. Heavy sweet, malty, fruity, flavors of bourbon, oak, vanilla, dark fruits - quite elegant and excuisite. Oily smooth texture, very soft carbonation, warming; moderate bitter finish. A sipper! I have to say it’s maybe the best and most original Brewdog i’ve tried.
